Ms. Hart was a teacher at the school and a part-time employee three days a week. She did not have contracted work schedules, but her contract required Ms. Hart to work the director`s reasonable hours to properly perform her duties. Another clause stipulated that the working time of part-time workers could „vary according to the requirements of the school schedule.“ At the end of the day, the understanding and expectations of the average user should be important for what they are up to. At least that should mean knowing when the terms change, even in any case. The website or services may contain links or references to other sites, but you should not infer or assume that the company operates, controls or is linked to these other sites. If you click on a link inside the site, the company cannot notify you that you have left the website and that you are subject to another website under the terms and conditions (including the privacy policy). Be sure to read the terms of use and privacy policies of another website before providing confidential information or making transactions. You should not rely on these conditions to regulate your use of another website. Now, to be clear, these terms are completely different from logic: „We can change this agreement at any time without telling you.“ In the example of a Twitter or a media, each service will really inform you of the changes made to the agreement – it`s great! The problem is that it is not mandatory. For both Twitter and the media, you only receive a notification if the services feel that the changes are essential. At least that`s what Medium`s terms of use say.

What`s the problem? Safeway has never informed its users of this change. The Court made the situation quite simple: „The agreement did not give Safeway the power to engage its customers on unknown future contractual terms, as consumers cannot accept conditions that do not yet exist. A user who is facing a contract in which she claims to accept conditions in any form cannot know what she accepts. Please read the following terms of use („Conditions“) which constitute a legally binding agreement between you and the company regarding your use of the Site and/or services provided by the Company, which contain, but are not limited to, the aggregation of important messages, newsletters, technology industry-focused analytics or the availability of various types of content via the website or mobile or Internet-connected device or other services. Fundamentally, this logic creates a two-step online contracting system. First, a clickwrap agreement (with „OK“ or „I agree“) is used to engage it.
